AFTS provides a safe and encouraging environment for persons experiencing homelessness and who are at risk. These artistic endeavors form a pathway to self determination, social connections and income generated through the pursuit of their art.

Art From the Streets is a volunteer-run program that provides a safe and encouraging environment where the positive spirit and creativity of homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression. Four times a week art classes at the Trinity Center at St. David's Church and Waterloo Greenway which culminate in an annual, public art show where the participants exhibit and sell their work.
